Vanarama National League club Aldershot Town have taken defender Lewis Kinsella on a month`s loan from SkyBet League Two side Colchester United.

The 23-year-old left-back has made fourteen appearances, including seven starts, for the Us this season, following thirteen starts in the first three months of 2016/17 before suffering a long-term ankle injury.

He spent eight years in the Arsenal academy, up to under-16 level, before joining Aston Villa in 2011.

He helped the Villa academy win the Europe-wide NextGen Series in 2013 and was then named as a substitute for the first-team’s Emirates FA Cup quarter-final against West Bromwich Albion in March 2015.

Loans at Luton Town, in League Two, and National League side Kidderminster Harriers followed, before he joined Colchester in July 2016.

“We’ve been looking for a left-back for quite some time,” manager Gary Waddock told the club`s press officer Steve Gibbs. “Lewis has got experience and has played at a higher level, and we’re all hoping that it’s the right fit. He wants to come in and do well for us, and I’m looking forward to working with him”.
